This is not the newest nor the most advanced hostel I have been to. However its probably the best experience I have had. The staff are very welcoming and friendly , I was treated like a guest and not just a customer. The facilities are very well thought out , there is a kitchen with all supplies , bathrooms are very clean and equipped. The beds are comfortable with good privacy offered by curtains. Fully automatic entry and there is a lift. The view from the balcony is amazing. When i was staying there , the staff had organised a free dinner , which shows great engagement with customers. I think they have really put in the effort in this place to make it now only a place to sleep but a very comfortable experience. The price is good and the service better. The only issue in my stay was that the aircon was a bit too cold , but I am sure if i had told the staff they would have sorted it.

I had a great stay here. Loved the rooftop, the staff were lovely, air con at night was perfect and I loved how the bunks have a privacy curtain, light and power points in each bed. The only problem I had is with the motion sensors when I was showering, it wouldn't pick up movement in the shower cubicle so quite a few times it went dark and I had to stick my hand out of the shower and wave it around to get the light to turn on again haha.

I was expecting a party hostel vibe, but a chilled one, since this was post-covid, but it was really fun, everyone respected each other, the team was really helpful and the guests were very nice, a nice group was formed. The facilities are good and the rooftop is very nice.

Great hostel with a nice roof top bar, kitchen, lounge area and everything you need. They kept everything very clean too which was great. Amazing location and nice rooms with curtains around your bed. Was very impressed with the experience and great place to meet people. Thank you!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Awesome and friendly staff. Relatively clean. It has an amazing location in St Guljan in the middle of everything. Great terrace where you can meet new friends. A highlight was a day trip to comino with around 35 from the hostel. Amazing trip. The only thing need improvement was water problem for showing, but this is a malta problem in general I would totally recommend the hostel

The location of the hostel definitely is great, close to all main buses, beach, and restaurants in the area. The terrace is lovely, great view and enough space for you to chill out. The only thing I would say is not very good is that the air conditioner is only on after 9:40 pm so if you want to go to bed early or want to have a nap or just chill out in your room, you won't be able to do it as it will be roasting. The rooms are ok, enough space, the drawers have their own electronic looker, which opens with your key, it is great. It was a minor incident but just to keep in mind if you are the kind of people that leave things over your bed and shelve. - Better to keep everything in your drawer as they may confuse your bed to be cleaned and will remove everything. I had my towel and the next day the team had it cleaned. My shampoo and bottle of water weren't so lucky. Showeres are ok, the light of the toilets was working very rarely. but it was clean always. The staff is friendly and there is a guy who prepares dinners super polite and friendly 🙂

The hostel is very welcoming. I stayed in a 12 bed dormitory and each bed had a curtain so you still have some privacy. The bed was not very comfortable, but I guess it makes sense because the price was very affordable. The hostel offers free dinner, which you can enjoy on the terrace upstairs where you can chill, meet people and enjoy St. Julien. The stuff was pretty welcoming too. I wish the light in the bathroom and in the showers wouldn't turn off automatically, because 60% of the time I had to shower in the dark. The only thing that kind of bothered me was the smell in the entrance and on the stairs. I have no idea what that is, but it smelt like someone was cooking garlic or something weird. However, the aesthetics of the hostel are great!

Family vibe at Marco Polo. I was working remotely on the rooftop, generally great vibes and good location! Staff is super friendly! Only thing is they promote that booking directly with the hostel is cheaper but I booked cheaper at Booking.com!

Great location, great bar, great for meeting new people. Free dinner every evening at 8pm, bar often open until 2am, and lots of people usually at the bar. Good for organising a group to do our clubbing (clubs open until 6am most nights) RFID keys which also open the bedroom lockers are great, and the lockers are huge (big enough for a large suitcase)

Dear customers ..I do not recommend this hostel in any way very bad conditions ..Don't rely on the pictures they put on the site..And THE WORST THING IS THAT THEY TAX YOU BEFORE YOU ACCOMMODATE WHAT IS NOT NORMAL .I know that money from the account is collected after confirmation upon receipt. please be very careful ..I have already submitted the referral procedure to the court ..thank you

Best hostel I could ever choose for my holidays! I traveled solo and made good friends there. Great atmosphere, place is very well located, staff are super friendly. Big thanks to Tati, Kris, Cherman, Eli, Clem and Brian for being such great people, they were very welcoming, I felt like home. I'll definitely go back when I have a chance.

I found it to be a great base of operations for those who wish to explore the island without having to constantly change hostel. It's easily accessible with Valletta being a stone throw away, there is a bus stop outside the hostel which can connect you everywhere on the island. A convenience store in the corner and a shopping mall within walking distance. All staff were very friendly and inclusive they really go out of their way to make you feel "part of the family" Keep it up Marco Polo!

Originally planned to stay here for two days but the kindness and coolness of the staff made me stay an extra 4 days! Special thanks to Paty who went out of her way to give me info on the non touristy parts of Malta and for continuously ensuring my stay was nothing less than perfect! Can't wait to visit again !

The hostel is very nice: excellent staff, totally available to explain about Malta, such as the best places to know, which bus lines must be taken, suggestion of places to eat and so on. The location is the hostel is really good: it is the heart of St. Julian's, where the night happens in Malta. Moreover, hostel is close to bus stop, markets and so on. The bed is good, with individual power on it, to load and electronic device. The pillows are not so comfortable, because it is too thin. The bedroom does not have air circulation, so it gets warm. The drawer has an excellent lock and safety system, which makes not necessary to take a personal locker to store the belongings with safety in it. There were impolite people on the bedroom I have been, but it is not an issue under the control of the hostel. On the top roof there is a bar, together with a great atmosphere, nice place to have some drink and meet people. In particular, great attention from Alessandro and from Bryan, two of the staff people who works there.

I was there for one week and enjoyed it a lot really! The space was big and was very beautiful. The condicions in the rooms were very good and so in the baths, had no problems at all. A very good kitchen and an amazing open space with a very nice view. The staff was incredible because everybody is very nice and ready to help. A special thanks to Chorche and Marie who made our vacations a lot better by keeping us with whatever we needed and wanted! It was the best experience I had in an Hostel and will definitely be going back!

If you want to be in the party city of Malta, this is the place to be. Otherwise, for anybody: single or couple or family, you can always find a better place to stay than this one. You are deprived of personal space, and in return just get a locker. But you don't need to live so bad, find a better place in your budget, which you can, atleast in Malta.

Very nice place to go for one or more night. 4 full floors, two rooftops, pool parties and very warmful hosts (thanks Martin for your welcoming!). I highly recommend that address and will not hesitate to go one more time if coming! You won't be disappointed!

Very well located in the middle of nightlife, Marco Polo Hostel has all the things you need to make your holiday even more perfect. Great ambiance, many excursions are organized during the week (Gozo, Comino, Pub Crawl, Barbecue.. to name just a few). It's even perfect for solo travelers who want to meet new faces! The building in himself comports 4 floors, 3 for the dorms and privates and the top floor for the kitchen, reception, terrace and bar. I also got precious advice on the island from the receptionist Bryan.

The staff is super friendly and helpful, especially Andrew Ireland and Alessandro Rogora. I love the rooftop terrace where people can gather and socialize. It is also very clean and neat inside the hostel. What I like the most is the fact that every bunk bed has a curtain attached to it that you can pull every time you want to have more privacy or if you'd like to 'switch the nightlight off'.

Best thing about this hostel is the rooftop. The room needed a fan or something to circulate air. The hostel does not turn on the AC till late so the room is unbearable to be in until then. Some rooms have balconies, ours did not. Security was strong. The cleaning could use some work. No soap in any of the restrooms. I’m pretty forgiving, with the belief that you get what you pay for, but I would not return to this hostel.

Great hostel, my first solo trip & I had my birthday during the pub crawl so I won’t be forgetting that one for a while, Shaun the tour guide & barman insured everyone was having the best time, the blue lagoon trip was incredible, my only complaint is that with the €10 key deposit I asked for it to be refunded on my card the staff said it was done but im still yet to receive it so maybe just ask for it back in cash

Pros: Good hostel right next to party area They organize pub crawls and trip to blue lagoon which was amazing. Friendly atmosphere with a cool rooftop bar and sitting area where people can mingle easily. I liked the facility of lockers under the bed. The shower rooms are well made. Comfortable beds. Cons: the room gets very hot and they don't switch on the AC during the day and the room has no windows. The toilets and showers need to be cleaned a bit more often as all rooms share them

When a hostel gets everything right, there's not much more one can add. My stay at Marco Polo Hostel couldn't have been better. Ideally located next to a bus stop and a short walk away from restaurants, clubs and a beach - I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. The rooftop bar is sweet, and I miss the friends I made there.

It was a friendly hostel. The people there were very friendly and gave me some good tips about visit to Blue lagoon. My first time in the hostel and I wanted to enjoy the social vibe of a hostel that I was told by others. At this place, they did not turn on the AC on a 95 degree day during day time. After a long flight I just wanted to sleep in my bed but could not because it was so hot inside the room. It was a 12 bunker room and at 3 AM, a couple came and started making out in one of the beds. I booked my hotel right at that time and moved out of the hostel the following morning. May be it is common thing in such hostels. I am not used to such things. But I was with my daughter and I did not want her to hear people making out at night. I forfeited all my 4 nights rent but did not mind moving out of hostel after one night of horrible stay so that I could enjoy rest of my trip in Malta. Sorry to say that.

I spent 4 nights at the hostel with a group of friends and couldn't recommend it more highly. The hostel is modern with a great social vibe. The rooftop bar always had something going on in the evenings and was a great place to meet new people. Rooms were sparkling clean with aircon, comfortable beds and curtains for each bunk. On top of all that the staff were amazing. Special mention to Xenia, her local knowledge and recommendations for places to swim, party and eat were perfect. My stay at Marco Polo Hostel wouldn't have been the same without her input.

Good location with good transportation network. The staff was friendly and helpful but unfortunately we didn't enjoy our time here. There were always parties in the hostel so it was a nightmare to us when we wanted to get a good rest after a long day of travel. We had to have our dinner in the reception because the dining tables are in the public area, which is the bar. It was always noisy and crowded at night. We felt like we were living in a bar instead of a hostel. During the night before we left, the roommates were having quarrels because there were "noises". We thought they were checking out, but it turned out that they were ... making out...... It would be a good hostel if you love partying (or having sex after it). It just didn't suit us.

Staying at Marco Polo reminded me of why I love hostels so much!! I was on holiday for a week on my own, and on my first night Alexandro and Simone especially, made me feel really welcome. The tours run by Paul to Gozo and the blue lagoon were the highlight of the week and it was a great way to meet other travellers, as was the BIGGEST pub crawl I’ve ever seen. You can tell that the staff there work really hard to make it the best experience possible, Definitely see you again soon!!

I spent three weeks in Marco polo and it was an amazing stay!!!! The hostel is very well located close to numerous bars, disco beaches and so on. For sure you will find you happiness. Last but not least the staff is just amazing, always smiling and helpful and I share very good moments with them and especially with Javi the best advisor for good hiking and climbing places.

Great hostel! The staff was super nice and helpful. They had an answer to every question I had. There is a kitchen where you can cook, the bathrooms are very clean and the place is clean as well. Everyone was quite nice and friendly. They had a lot of activities you could sign in to. I went to the pub crawl and it was one of the best I have been to.

The staff was very friendly and organized different events throughout the week. If you're looking to meet others while traveling, I highly recommend staying here! I stayed in a private room with a private bathroom and it was really nice. It was much more spacious and nicer than I expected. The only warning I would give is that the hallways can get pretty loud at night when people are coming and going. If you plan on going to bed early, they may keep you up.

I liked that each bed had its own curtain to block out the light and maintain privacy. I also liked how large the locker was! The bunk bed was sturdy, so even when the other person sharing the bunk bed moved, I wasn't affected, which happened in some other hostels. The water flow rate of the shower was too low. They probably limit the flow rate to protect the environment, but I doubt that it served the purpose because when there's less water coming out than required, I needed extra time to wash, so maybe ultimately the total amount of water used was the same or perhaps even larger than usual. I also think that it's more convenient if the locker on the same side as the ladder is assigned to the person sleeping on the upper bunk, so the person using the upper bunk can keep the locker open or closed as he/she wants depending on whether he/she needs to use the ladder.

First time in Malta and I wasn't disappointed by this hostel. I was travelling alone but, I was quickly welcomed by the staff and guests. Every night we all went out and had a good time in Paceville thanks to Simone and Xenia. The day trips were great shout out to Paul! The rooms were clean and the air conditioning is a God send. You can securely keep your belongings in the draws underneath the beds and you get given a fob to unlock them. The toilets and showers are very clean too! Overall a great stay, thank you!

Fantastic hostel, provides enough privacy at night, great facilities, and the locker for your stuff is very secure. Staff are brilliant making you feel welcome and getting you involved in their nights out. They were very helpful when it came to organising transport for our group. Great location, very close to the bars/ clubs. Would highly recommend.

The hostel was really tidy and clean. What I liked most it s that you have a curtain that cover all the bed so in this way you can have your own privacy while sleeping. The staff was really nice and friendly and the party that they organized on the roof top was amazing! A special thank goes to Alessandro rogora who made my stay at the hostel really good through our conversations and his kindly and friendly attitude And the most important thing, the alcohol at the hostel's bar it s really cheap! I would recommend this hostel to everyone who wants to enjoy Malta in the best way possible! The location is great., near all clubs and just few minutes walking from the beach ?

I had an amazing stay at Marco Polo Hostel. I was solo traveling in Malta and I was not sure what to expect. The staff was especially helpful with giving me advice on what to do in Malta. The showers, bathrooms and rooms were always clean. The staff really welcomed me with open arms. I would like to give a shout out to the bartender, Paul! I had the best time on the day trip to Camino, swimming with him and a few other travelers across the blue lagoon. I will never forget the experience. It was definitely my favorite hostel experience as a solo traveler! I will not forget it. I will be back!

Best Hostel I've ever been to! People are just awesome, be it the guests or the staff. The dorms are spacious and quiet and the curtain at your bed gives you privacy. There's always something going on on the roof top lounge, which is just amazing. Had a great time with you, although I wish I could've stayed longer. Special thanks and greetings go to Xenia and Lily! Hope to see you again!

Nice and clean place, but mind that it is a party hostel. You're more likely to find people on a weekend getaway from other European countries, than backpackers roaming the world. The crowd is truly international though, and the staff friendly. Daily events at the rooftop help with meeting new people, especially when you travel alone. Sufficient number of toilets and showers. Beds have curtains giving some privacy in a dorm room.

I had a lovely time whilst staying at Marco Polo Hostel. The staff where all great and really helpful. Really enjoyed the pub crawls. Like the idea you could hire towels for 2 euros. Really well cleaned on a daily basis the showers and toilets. Great location looking forward to going back in June 2019

Cracking little hostel in a great location in central Paceville. Rooms and toilets are really clean. Beds each have individual plug sockets which were UK compatible so no adapter necessary. Beds and dorms all had air con which kept it nice and cool. The bar on the roof top is vibrant at night And views from the crows nest are special. Recommend if you’re into hostels.

Excellent relation between price and quality!! I paid 8€ per night. The room was clean and wide. the kitchen was small and Not so nice. I slept in a room with about 10 beds. However each cabin was divided by a curtain. Point for the privacy 🙂 there was also a shelf with lock for each guest. A good location, many restaurants and cafes 5minutes away.

Absolutely loved this hostel! It’s location is superb, being a 1 minute walk from most bus stops and a short stroll to the marina. I’ve never been in a hostel where they clean so much! I mean wow! So clean, and yet it maintains a warm comfortable feel. I love the nautical island theme throughout the hostel, enhanced by the decor of the artwork running through the stairwell and seeping into the dorm hallways. And finally, the staff. They’re just wonderful. Genuine, friendly, happy, helpful, knowledgeable, wonderful people. Thank you all for making my stay as memorable as it was. I will be back ?
